of different channels, some of which can be discussed in other settings. fbi is leading an investigation. the state department is actively supporting this. i have been in libya to talk to the libyan leadership about the importance of their cooperation in the investigation. we're making some progress. i wasn't in asia last week to emphasize to the tunisian president and prime minister -- i was in tunisia last week to emphasize to the tunisian president and prime minister. we're working this relentlessly. would not have the answers yet. i think a making progress. the- we d onoo not have answers yet. i think we are making progress. >> a recurring theme seems to be stovepipe decision making. have heard the bureaucratic burbidge of what the to the sixth floor, -- verbage of what got to the sixth floor, the seventh floor. what is the state department going to do to get beyond this what goes to what floor to make sure this does not happen again? >> as someone who spent a lot of time in corporate america as well, stovepipe and goes on there as well to. we of got to learn from this. we have got t
year, the fbi conducted a record 16,450,000 background checks. this year, the total so far is over 16,800,000. and that doesn't include the month of december. future legislation could affect availability of certain semiautomatic weapons, features on the guns, and the magazines that hold large numbers of rounds. without specifics, store president tom deets says any gun owner could be vulnerable. >> would the existing rifles that are in the marketplace be legal? or would they go across the board and make everything that people have previously purchased illegal? >> the uncertainty bothers non-gun owners, as well. he's a first-time gun buyer worried about protecting his family. >> why now? why today? >> so soon after the shootings? >> because i'm worried that the government's going to put so much regulations on being able to do this, you know, come future months that it's not going to be an option for me. >> industry analysts see this as a possible peak to the sales growth that began with the election of president obama four years ago. u.s. gun sales totaled $2.5 billion in 2008, this yea
guns there's more homicide. >> that's simply not true. our fbi data and our national government data show that the higher murder rates, the higher violent crime rates are in areas where gun ownership is discouraged and carrying is either illegal or discouraged. i don't know what they were looking at at harvard, but that is absolutely not what the data show. >> if you also look at the top ten states across the country and per capita gun ownership. five of those top ten states also have the highest gun deaths per capita. how do you explain that? >> they still have a low violent crime rate and a lower murder rate. so you're talking numbers versus rates, and i think that's probably where the disparity is coming in. >> last question for you here, larry. when we look at the problem ahead of us, several gun shows canceled in the wake of the newtown shooting, doesn't that go against the message that the nr ascent yesterday canceling the gun shows that canceling gun shows at least according to mr. lapierre's statements, need to be at schools and need to defend themselves. >> each gun show is

not been discussed is how quickly or the fbi -- i was troubled by how long it took the fbi to get to the scene, and we need to make sure that we are falling back to where we were before september 11 where things get stovepipe within agencies information is not being communicated, and when agencies are not working together. senator mccain pointed out an example, that there were eyewitnesses that it took days for us to get information, about what those by witnesses had seen, which would have cleared up a misrepresentation that was made about the reaction to the video from day one. i think those questions have to be answered to make sure that we prevent future attacks like this. >> there will be as we know nominations coming forward for a secretary of defense, a new director of the cia. these questions will be part of that process. they will be part of our obligation as our role of advice and consent. questions? >> you talked about the failure of leadership the report highlights. do you think people above should be held accountable? i know secretary clinton is leading. >> the buck al
responsible? why did the fbi take several weeks to get on to the site of benghazi. why were reporters finding journals of the ambassador but we still don't know what the ambassador actually really thought or said about the security risks. >> chris: you heard the clip of lindsay graham saying he wants to ask secretary clinton the what did you know and when did you know it questions. she is reportedly going to testify in january. is the controversy dead or still have some legs? >> the controversy is dead, over. over for a long time. the report says there is no coverup and no lies. it the politicized in the midst of the campaign. with regard to hillary clinton there is no indication that she saw any of the reports and the report talks about did it get to the 7th floor. that is not clear from the report. nobody is indicateing that secretary clinton had some operative decision-making role here that led to the calamity. she may say she saw some of it but it is not determinative. the larger issue here is the fact that this report and you have is credible people behind it saying we looked into all th
the fbi agents cut that are protecting our borders and our nation from a challenge. people will be cut out on programs that support the poorest americans get access to healthy food and a strong strength for their children and this is what bothers me right now. there is a way forward through this. >> there is a way forward and, peggy, i want to bring it back to you. it does seem if you look at the constellation of forces in washington, the only way that something is actually going to get to the president's desk is if house speaker john boehner agrees to let there be a vote on something that will get democratic votes and republican votes and probably shear off his most conservative members. >> that may be true. that may be where this whole thing ends, but i think it still has to be made, this point, that everybody, republicans included on capitol hill, they all know there's going to be a tax increase. they know it. >> done. >> this is coming. even if it doesn't come in sequester, it's going to come in a deal, so they all know that, but for two reasons, one for the seriousness of it, a $16 tr
